extremely proud; I know that we are all very proud of you! Regardless of your major, your 
degree from MCLA will prove valuable as you pursue careers or graduate school. 

It is my greatest hope that you will look back on your time at MCLA with fondness. You have I 
worked hard to complete your studies, you have developed enduring relationships with 
members of the faculty and staff, and you have built friendships that will last you a lifetime. I 
urge you to continue those bonds in the years ahead; they will serve you well personally and 
professionally. 

As you head off to begin new jobs, continue your education, or explore new opportunities 
please keep in touch with MCLA. As alumni of the institution you are our best examples of

SENIORS 



2004 - 2005 




To the senior class, 

First and foremost - we did it! We are finally graduating! And 
now we have to leave MCLA; our home for the past four years. 

Thankfully, we are leaving not only with our degrees, but with 
great friends and memories - many which will last a lifetime. 

As we embark on the next chapter of our lives, we, your senior 
class officers, want to wish you all the best of luck. 

Remember, there's no stage you can comprehend better than the 
one you have just left. 

Congratulations seniors, 
Your senior class officers.

C-Store Opens 

There were many exciting 
changes within the Campus 
Center thanks to ARAMARK. 
The servery was remodeled 
and the Student Affair staff 
with Facilities had given the 
Centennial Room and 
Marketplace a new look. In 
addition to this ARAMARK 
opened a new C-Store. 
Students love it and use it 
daily! 



President Grant held her 
annual "Giving Thanks" 
Reception that honors 
employees of the college 
that have hit milestones of 
employment. This year 
many faculty and staff 
members received thanks for 
all their years of service and 
dedication. 



New Employees 

MCLA experienced a variety 
of new employees in many 
departments including 
Admissions, Student Affairs, 
Faculty members and in the 
President's Office. Brian 
Bourque, as seen above, was 
hired to run Orientation 
Programs and assist with 
other Student Development 
activities. 



Contracts 
Un-Funded 

As employees have been 
experiencing for the past few 
years, contracts have gone 
unfunded and raises were 
not issued. Faculty members 
were among the groups this 
year to feel the brunt of 
governments beliefs that 
Higher Education is not a 
priority. 



Re-Structuring 

Along with the new 
employees there were many 
individuals promoted to nev 
positions to help restructure 
departments. Doug McNeil, 
pictured above, was 
promoted to Associate Dean 
of Students along with 
Charlotte Degen that was 
promoted to Dean of 
Students. There were many 
other staff members that 
were also promoted due to 
hard work and dedication to 
help build an even stronger 
MCLA community.

ATHLETICS 



"Leadership consists not in degrees of technique 
but in traits of character; it requires moral rather 
than athletic or intellectual effort, and it imposes 
on both leader and follower alike the burdens of 
self-restraint." 

~ Lewis 1 1. Lapham

"MCLA is so devoted 

to baseball that rather 

than be rained out we 

would pour gasoline 

on a field and set it 

on fire to dry it out. " 

~ Steve Hemingway. 



"Why not us?" 
~ Rich Dumas.

If you could 

make any club 

on campus what 

woulcMU)e? 

Maureen Cherry 



I would make a 

Tae-bo club. I 

am taking the 

class and it's a 

great way to get 

in shape and 

make new 

friends. 




Steven Hemingway 



The club I would 
create is JEJAC 
(The James Earl 
Jones Apprecia- 
tion Club) where 
we write letters 
to James Earl 
[ones and have a 
weekly look-a- 
like contest 




Max Sharky 




I would create 

an on-campus 

paintball club. 

where you could 

shoot paintballs 

anywhere on 

campus.
